FILM

The Grey

Liam Neeson’s new movie is about survivors of a plane crash in Alaska struggling to survive as they are hunted by a pack of wolves. They accidently end up in the wolves den area and they tend to fend off the intruders. The survivors must then ban together and attempt to get away from the wolves while keeping an eye for any sort of ambush the wolves may try. Neeson delivers an amazing performance as Ottway, the leader of the men who survive the crash. This movie plays on strong emotions from loss of a loved one, to wanting to quit when it seems the world is against you. Anyone who is a fan of survival movies or Liam Neeson will not be disappointed with this one.

The Vow

Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams play a married couple who are involved in a car accident one night. After the crash, McAdams’ character, Paige, loses her memory and can no longer remember her husband or any of their life together. Her husband, Leo (Tatum), then must spend his time getting his wife to fall back in love with him. Tatum and McAdams provide a wonderful performance filled with strong chemistry between the two. This movie is more than just a chick flick as it really goes into the “what if” category when it comes to true love.
